Global outlook for the mobile hotspot router market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global mobile hotspot router market is predicted to grow at a rapid pace and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 19% over the forecast period. With constantly changing business scenarios, it is imperative for organizations to develop a mobile workforce to stay competitive in the market. Constant changes in work locations, time zone barriers, and the increasing need to access official and confidential data via an employee’s personal device have resulted in the augmented adoption of BYOD policy. Employees prefer these policies as they enable them to use one device for both personal and professional use and also includes devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Moreover, as all business and individual users require high-speed internet access with secure Internet protocols like WPA2 to protect the wireless devices from external risks of hacking and data theft, so most portable devices have the necessary features to support LTE advanced wireless technology, enabling high-speed data transfer. Mobile hotspots will help the mobile workforce to connect, access, and share data anytime, anywhere, which will boost this market’s growth prospects in the coming years.
